Success! Thanks for posting your review of El Campesino. You’ve done the world some good today.

Worst customer service and mediocre food

Greeted by a man who grunted at me as if I were bothering him by wanting a table. I told him ""1 for lunch"" to which he turned and walked towards the booths. He threw the menu onto a table and kept on walking. I assumed this was my table for lunch. Server wasnt all that great at customer service either and the food looked like it was just slung onto the plate. Will never return and make sure I spread the word... view more

Like a Taco Bell with silverware

how do you mess up a tamale and enchilada? They seem to have no basic cooking skills. All the fake ""Mexican"" atmosphere in the world can't make up for a basic lack of a decent edible dish.

This place was horrible. The food was 3 ingredients slopped on a plate and not even cooked through. I sent it back. I told the server I'd like to pay for my drink and leave, but another man came out and I was threatened with a ""fight"" if I didn't pay for the food I sent back. Needless to say, I'm never stepping foot in that place again.

The service is great, the food is very good, and the margaritas are very reasonable--like $15 for a whole pitcher!

A disappointment

I first went to this restaurant about 3 years ago and remembered it as being very good, as close to authentic as it could be here in PA, Mexican food. I'm not in this area of town often and had the opportunity to have lunch at El Campesino a couple of days ago. I don't know if the food quality has really gone downhill, or if I remember the food as being better than it really was, but we went with another couple and w... view more

If you want to get REAL Mexican...

Awesome food. I've been to all of the El Campesino locations but the Monroeville location takes the cake. Everything on the menu is fantastic. Enchilada and burrito sauces, salsa, and refried beans are some of the best I've ever had. Super fast service. If you're worried about authentic, some of the employees barely speak English! All the employees ARE authentic. The only down side is this location is BYOB, if that's... view more

AVOID @ all costs...

Mexican food? Not even close. Let us start with the beginning~ when you are eating GOOD Mexican food NO one cares how the place looks... Ever been to a taco stand on the corner? But this might as well been McDonald's. \r Salsa? I can't believe they have the nerve to call it that. \r Ground beef in tacos, with BOXED shells, go to Taco Bell. \r I have had better beans out of a Rosarita can. \r The enchilada sauce t... view more

fresh chips, salsa needs some cilantro, chili renallo is unbeatable

I used to love this restaurant but lately, it's slipping. The service isn't so friendly as it used to be (it depends on who you get) the food quality has become very inconsistent, and the prices are climbing as the quality goes down. I wouldn't mind paying more, really I wouldn't, because when it's good it's great! I'm practically a weekly regular but am beginning to re-think regular lunches there. Lately, it's been ... view more

It ain't Maya or Rosa Mexicana, but what is in Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh Mexican food = combo plates, period. Hopefully someday that will change.\r In the meantime, far as combo-plate joints in Pittsburgh go, El Campesino is above average. The one thing they do better than anyone else is chilaquiles. \r

True Tex-Mex

I was born and raised in south Texas.. the birth place of Tex-Mex. \r El Campesino upholds the Tex-Mex Standards 100%.\r The nachos are to die for!\r The fajitas are heavenly!\r The salsa is nice and spicy..\r Though you can request the mild stuff\r Thats what we get for my 4 year old daughter..\r hee hee hee\r All in all.. a VERY pleasing experience!\r \r Only 1 complaint...\r The place could be a bit big... view more
